Mother's Day Butterfly Lamp
Three dimensional butterflies appear to flitter across the four walls of this Mother's Day lamp project. I’ve supplied the artwork and instructions for craft knife work as well as Silhouette Machine and SVG files. You just need to download and print out the one that suits you. Machine users should scroll to the bottom to get started on this page. The colorful card stock lamp slips over the light unit which offers several selections on its handy remote. You can even choose to have various colors fade or jump. The leaves and butterflies are illuminated and given a different feel by the color choice. Lining the card stock with Velum or Parchment paper softens the light and gives the illusion of double wing butterflies on all panels of the lamp. Surprise a mom you know with this unique gift!
step 1 - Cut four sheets of parchment or velum paper to measure 6.25" x 2 3/8". Set aside.
step 5 - Create two equal size panels by folding the entire sheet in half with the unprinted sides touching, and matching the cut end with the flap crease.
